ready or not

We're getting ready to head off to Montana again*, and I've spent the day prepping the house and the luggage... and reminiscing about our journey 2 years ago. Then we were driving; this time we're flying. Two years ago, it was raining, and had been raining for days and days and days. Now, we've had the most beautiful weather ever. All sorts of flowers and plants are ready to pop, and it's making me sad that we'll miss it. But, as was true 2 years ago, my nephews are growing up without me, and seeing them live and in color is way cooler than seeing any old flower :)

*I know I shouldn't be announcing to the world that we're leaving, but our house will not be empty. We have a highly qualified house sitter, as well as my constable father in law coming to mow on a very regular schedule. So no worries. It's all good.

I've had a few requests to blog our trip again. I don't think it will be as exciting, since we'll get to our destination in 1/4 of the time, but I'm happy to oblige. Maybe this time the exciting bits will be when my kids take over the writing to describe my flying phobia. Either way, see you tomorrow from mountain time.

I love your style. The best thing about blogging is it's the digital scrapbook your family and friends can look back on in years to come. :)

I hope you had a good flight. Two of my girls and I are taking a bus trip to New York next week. I hate traveling, but it will be interesting ;).

Thanks Am, and yes, looking back on what I wrote 2 years ago is very satisfying. We did have good flights... but I'd much rather be on a bus. I'm a feet-on-the-ground sort of girl.
